So with the added support for 07-08 autos is there anyway to run a low boost (7psi) setup?
I was talking to Kinetic Autoworks and they told me to ask for help from James?? maybe he could work something out for the element, I know from the boosted element FB group there would be alot of interest.

It would be MAF based and you'd like run into several error codes at first. These ECUs aren't setup for forced induction.

I'm willing to give it a try if I will be getting support on the forum. was this done before? anyone with experience in what sort of trouble/limitations I'd run into?

If it was done before the options you'd need would already exist.

what I meant is if its been done before with Ktuner on any other honda/acura platform with similar ecu limitations to the element...
what would the tuning strategy be like and what would be the limitations
I've been using piggyback FIC6 for the past 3 years but it has some issues like
1- slight throttle tip in stumble
2- can't optimize timing for 93 octane in the off-boost part of the map
3- no control over vtc, vtec, open/closed loop switchover
4-not very precise control for AFRs
I assume none of these would be an issue with ktuner

You'd certainly gain control over some of that, but run into issues with codes related to manifold pressure etc.
